Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Beam particle texture tile can't be controlled when Noise module is applied

On the test beam in below images, I set the tile distance to get the coordinates proportion right. When noise module is applied and low frequency is turned on, texture is stretched and tiling cannot be controlled any more. Could you verify if this is a bug, and let me know if there's a workaround?

Hey Pinepanda -

Since Beams are chaotic by nature, the noise module does adjust the texture tiling frequncy to keep that style of movement. However if your texture, like the numbers sub-UV texture, require that tiling, you can go into your Material and add a texture coordinate off of the texture sample and tile from those coordiantes which will stay in effect after the noise module is applied to the beam.
